Coconut Shrimp Thai Curry

A simple dish to make with lots of flavor.

2 pound of raw shrimp

1 white onion finely sliced

3 garlic cloves minced

1 oz of fresh lemongrass

2 tablespoons of thai chilli paste

1 lime

1 can coconut cream

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil

1 cup of seafood stock( i make this with the head of the shrimp)

Heat up a sauté pan and drizzle the olive oil in. Once heated put in the garlic and onion and sauté untill tender about 10 min, making sure to keep stirring so the garlic does not burn.

Next pour in the coconut cream( you can use coconut milk if you cant find coconut cream) and mix. Get the lemongrass and cut it length wise and throw it in. Cut the lime in half and put half into the pan. Next put in the chilli paste and stock and stir well and let cook for about 15 min.

Now place the shrimp into the pan stir and let cook for another 5 min.

Before serving take out the lime and lemongrass. Serve over a bed of rice with a lile wedge as garnish.
